From being named as the best player on the pitch in the previous match against AmaZulu, midfielder Ben Motshwari will be a notable absentee from the Orlando Pirates line-up in this weekend’s fixture.
Motshwari was impressive in midfield as Pirates bagged an important 1-0 victory in Orlando on Thursday to keep their hopes of a second-place finish and a ticket to the CAF Champions League alive.
However, the yellow card that Motshwari picked in the first half of the clash with Usuthu meant that he would miss this weekend’s fixture against TS Galaxy as it was his fourth of the season and was confirmation of his one-match suspension.
As confirmed by the PSL, along with Galaxy’s Bathusi Aubass, Motshwari has been suspended for the clash to take place at the Mbombela Stadium on Sunday.
Meanwhile, two other Pirates stars in Paseka Mako and Siphesihle Ndlovu are at risk of suspension as they are on three yellow cards each.
The last two matches for Bucs will be against Baroka away on June 2, and against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at home on June 5.
